Response to Just curious


These people don't actually own the land -- its public land that they are gaining rights to at essentially NO COST under 130 year old mining law that is ridiculous to apply in modern colorado.

NOBODY wants mines on those public lands, they are too precious for recreation. This is nineteenth century land policy, cronyism, and gaming the system run amok.
